Proceeds from the Tour de Fleur benefit the advancement of our trails and bikeways. This event is designed to empower mothers, sisters, daughters and friends, to enjoy riding bicycles on the streets of Billings, and provides a much-needed network for women to meet, ride and pedal side by side to the finish line where they will be showered with flowers.

The Tour de Fleur is co-sponsored by many of the Shops at Shiloh and Montana Brewing, The Base Camp, The Spoke Shop, St. Vincent Health Care, Billings OB/GYN Great West Engineering, Computers Unlimited and Valley Credit Union.
Proceeds from the ride will contribute to the continued community-wide efforts of Billings TrailNet to connect Billings’ bikeways and trails.

MOTHERLOAD is a award-winning, crowd-sourced documentary in which the cargo bicycle becomes a vehicle for exploring motherhood in a way that combats both climate change and the increasing isolation of our digital world. It includes some great scenes about women gaining independence through biking from the history of early bikes to the present day.
